Does Your Van Have Locks On Rear Doors?

Just wondering if the previous owner had removed the locks on the rear doors of my 2004 Scudo, or they were never fitted at all. The sliding doors have rubber blanking grommets where a lock would go and the rear door has a keyhole where the key fits in, but doesn't turn.

Just curious if this is what all these vans are like.

Do you mean the locks built into the handles, or some secondary locks?

The handles on all vans have factory fitted locks at all the door handles afaik.

Re: Does Your Van Have Locks On Rear Doors?

My Synergie and 806 only have key holes on the front doors, not on the sliding doors. But in those cases, there's no blanking plates.

What's behind the blanking plates?

I've never looked. It's just rubber grommets in the lock holes of the sliding doors and a lock in the back door that has never turned since I bought the van when it was 3 years old.

Looks like someone has removed or disabled the rear locks for load security. Pointless really, as there was only the small ladder type bulkhead behind driver when I bought it.
